A Piece of Cake by Linda S. Amstutz is a collection of her essays. The topics vary; each one will have you rolling on the floor in laughter. She begins her book with "My Last Party" in which she plans her own funeral. I could relate to the topic because I've also planned my funeral. After reading the wonderful celebration she has planned, I may have to borrow a few of her ideas and incorporate them into my plans!
"The Five Day Rule" is filled with advice and wisdom for the host and guest. Personally I think three days should be the limit for a visit. Have you ever heard of a hotel? Hotels strengthen friendships.
Amstutz tackles a variety of topics and shares her opinion of each: from taxes, to the Junior League holiday sale, to dreams, and imaginary friends.
Have you ever daydreamed about winning the lottery? Amstutz shares her plans for the cash. I like this essay. I've often thought of what I'd spend the money on, who I'd share it with and how life would be different. Of course you have to first buy a lottery ticket.
No one could possibly read Linda Amstutz's essays and not laugh. Her style is conversational. Her tone is humorous. I found I had a lot in common with her. This is a must read book. I look forward to reading more of Amstutz's work.
